convert-to command line parameter

Hello, I'm trying to convert a Microsoft Word document to text using the convert-to command-line parameter using LibreOffice 3.4.5, OOO340m1 (Build:1505), on OpenSuse 12.1. I tried these two commands.

soffice --convert-to txt filename.doc Nothing happened.

soffice --headless --convert-to txt filename.doc Produced a PDF file.

Why do I need "--headless"? If this is mandatory, the documentation should state this. Can LibreOffice convert Word Perfect documents?

The format for "convert-to" parameter is: --convert-to output_file_extension[:output_filter_name] [--outdir output_dir]

What are the valid "output_file_extension" values? What are the valid "output_filter_name" values?

For the documentation, the "soffice --help" showed the "--convert-to" parameter. The help->LibreOffice Help does not show this parameter.

Thank you
